Nursery Sneak Peak

Yesterday, April 4th, was one month from baby girls due date! I know due dates are just estimates, but if it is accurate, baby girl could be here May 4th! :) 

To celebrate that baby girl will be here soon, why not share a few pictures of the nursery?!?! It is just about done and ready for her arrival.

If you follow me on Instagram then you already know I LOVE monograms. So with that being said... of course there had to be a monogram somewhere in the room (meaning it became the focal point, just above her crib).
Her name will be Madeleine Maria.  It just so happens that her initials are symmetrical when made as a monogram ;) We will be pronouncing Madeleine as Mad-e-lyn. Her middle name, Maria, is a middle name that has been passed down for many generations on my mothers side of the family.  So Maria is my middle name, my mother's middle name, my grandmother's middle name and so on. 

The monogram came from FromMeToYouMonograms on Etsy. I ordered it unfinished and painted it once it arrived. I was definitely happy with the quality of the monograms and highly recommend that you check out this store. 

When starting the nursery, we bought her bedding first. It is from Pottery Barn Kids, the Harper collection mixed with the Lara collection. The bumper is Lara but the quilt and crib skirt is Harper. The curtains also came from Pottery Barn Kids and is their "sailboat" cloth. 
The glider we ordered from Babies "R" Us.  It is the Kersey upholstered swivel recliner that we ordered in 'burlap'. I shopped around and I was definitely happy with this purchase! It is super comfortable and I love the burlap color.  
It took me forever to figure out what I was going to put above the dresser/changing table that we bought from Ikea's Hemnes collection. At first I was going to do a collage of different frames but after hours of searching on Pinterest, I decided to keep it simple with these three frames below. I ordered these water color prints from TheDaisyFields on Etsy. She was great, she can customize the colors in the tree to match the colors of your nursery. 
I originally saw her print with a coral tree but wanted a bit more light pink for the room. After ordering she sent me a proof and they arrived a few days later. I definitely recommend checking our her shop if you are looking for something for your nursery.
I ended up making the alphabet picture with my Cricut machine. I bought paper from The Paper Source for the background and then cut the letters out on white and silver paper.  Then I glued the letters on to the pink paper and ta-da! Of course this teacher has the alphabet in the nursery! 
I had to share this little guy... he was a gift from baby girl's Great Aunt Donna. It is an elephant chair that came from Pottery Barn Kids and she added the little bows to match the nursery! I love it! 
 And last but not least I had to add this photo...
 When I was taking all of the photos of the nursery Dillard came in and brought his pink pig, "Squeakers"! :) He wanted to make sure he got to make another appearance on the blog! 

If you have any questions about where I bought anything please feel free to comment below. I am happy to share anything about the nursery with you!
